Life After Juliet
This book took me on an unexpected journey. The raw emotion of the book is best suited for a young adult; however, some of the writing could be described as more juvenile. Right from the beginning, the prologue pulls you in with a realistic depiction of the stages of grief a teen goes through for the loss of their friend. It shows that while you may never really get over it, it’s okay to move on. The main character, Becca, initially shuts down after the death of her friend. Throughout the story you feel her pain, and you can see she’s just going through the motions. One method of coping is the thoughts in her head of what her friend might have said to her to encourage her. Combined with some humor and light-hearted moments, this book has it all. I give it five stars and recommend this book, especially if you’re going through a loss or great sadness of your own.
